JACKMASTER RESIDENCY: NUMBERS X DANCE MANIA
JACKMASTER RESIDENCY: NUMBERS X DANCE MANIA. JACKMASTER + PAUL JOHNSON + PARRIS MITCHELL + SPENCER + ROOM 2: DEADBOY'S DANCEHALL
It’s an honour to welcome Jackmaster as our resident for the third quarter of 2014. Numbers co-founder and Radio 1 resident, Jackmaster has risen to the top of his game with a unique ear for jacking house and techno. Outreaching his Glaswegian roots, Jackmaster has become an international name without producing music of his own – just one of the reasons why we think this DJ’s DJ will make the perfect resident. Fresh from delivering his first ever BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix, we’re seriously looking forward to having him play 13 consecutive Saturdays across July, August and September.
Joining him tonight are Parris Mitchell and Paul Johnson of legendary ghetto house label Dance Mania. The label has enjoyed something of a renaissance in recent years, with their Hardcore Traxx compilation from earlier this year serving as a reminder of the label’s legacy and importance. Both Mitchell and Johnson have rich histories in the birth of Chicago house, so seeing them going head to head with Numbers should be a sight to behold.
